We made it, you guys! We made it through 19 episodes of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (and Part 1 of the fiery reunion special). We learned that Yolanda H. Foster loves lemons and Kim Richards loves turtles. We watched Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville become besties and Faye Resnick angling for a Season 4 promotion. We realized that Kyle and Mauricio Umanksy are still hot and that Marisa Zucker might not like her husband very much. We saw Adrienne Maloof take a step back this season and we saw a little bit of Taylor Armstrong’s butt.
But while we know more about these ladies than we'd care to admit, there's always more to know. WHAT was Adrienne's secret that Brandi let loose? WHO is Taylor's secret lawyer boyfriend? WHY does Kim love turtles so much? While we may never find out the answers to these mysterious questions, we didn't end last night's double dose of RHOBH without absorbing a few key takeaways. Here are 20 things we learned during last night's Beverly Hills extravaganza:
1.) Lisa should wear black more often.
2.) Braids are back!
3.) Thirty years is a long time to be married.
4.) Do not insult a hostess!
5.) (And always say hello to the hostess when you’re late.)
6.) Everybody fights everybody else's battles, and everyone is everyone else's mouthpiece.
7.) ...With the exception of Taylor:
8.) You can indeed file for legal separation in California.
9.) Kyle cries at the drop of a hat. Or at least the drop of a separation notice.
10.) While vow renewals on reality TV are generally publicity stunts, this one was totally weep-worthy.
11.) Kim's "Where Are They Now" card is everything:
13.) THIS is how you dress for a reunion:
14.) Kyle and Lisa aren't friends anymore. Sad face.
15.) If you do not attend your Bravo renuion, you will be fired. Got that, Adrienne?
16.) Kyle & Mauricio are revealed to be the real estate version of ambulance chasers? Discuss.
17.) Almost everyone has a problem with Yolanda. See? You learn things every day.
18.) "Fifteen-year love cycles" is the new "till death do us part."
19.) The new housewife is… NOT LeAnn Rimes.
20.) We're so gonna miss this guy:
